Prevents the appearance of unpleasant odors and does not constrain movement.
Ninetygo, a subsidiary of Xiaomi, introduced a novelty - an antibacterial T-shirt with a neutral design, suitable for sports and for walking around the city (when quarantine ends, of course).
It is made of a special fabric that not only absorbs sweat, but also prevents the growth of bacteria and the formation of an unpleasant odor, while allowing the skin to breathe. The material is soft and stretches well, providing freedom of movement.
The novelty was rated at 89 yuan. Sizes from M to XXL are available. The t-shirt has already gone on sale in China in three colors (gray, gray-blue and pink) and will soon appear on AliExpress.
These life hacks only create the appearance of protection.
1. Follow the rule of 5 seconds
Legend has it: if food fell to the floor, but a piece was lifted earlier than 5 seconds later, you can safely eat it. Because microorganisms are not so nimble and will not have time to crawl onto your sandwich or apple in such a short time.
2. Touch the door handle through the sleeve
The very idea - to create a barrier between your skin and a potentially contaminated surface - is very correct. But using your own clothes for this is not the best option. The dirt, bacteria, and viruses that were on the doorknob end up on your sleeve and then calmly contact your wrists and palms, face, hair, phone, bag, and so on.
3. Press the elevator button with your elbow or knuckle
Here is almost the same story as in the previous paragraph. It just seems that we don’t touch anything and that microbes from buttons, handles and doors cannot harm us. But, for example, the strap of a bag or a pocket of clothes is easy to touch with your elbows, and we also put them on the table, and then touch it with our hands.
With knuckles, dirt and microorganisms easily fall into the palms and face - when a person clenches his hands into fists, twists his fingers, props his chin, rubs one hand on the other, and so on.
4. Hold your breath when someone sneezes or coughs nearby.
From infection (if someone sneezing is sick with something) this will not save you. Firstly, you just won’t have time to hold your breath fast enough - and the smallest drops of saliva and sputum will still fall into your airways (yes, it sounds very disgusting, but alas, it is).
5. Wipe the surface with an antibacterial wipe
This only works if you use a new cloth for each surface. And if you wipe the same table, door handles, switches and buttons, then simply transfer microorganisms from one object to another. After all, the longer you use a napkin, the less antibacterial agents remain on it - and microbes have more chances to survive.
6. Constantly smear hands with an antiseptic
The sanitizer seems to be a universal and 100 percent remedy. He rubbed his hands, sprayed everything that was possible - and you sit "in the house." But antiseptics work only when they are used correctly.
There is no toilet on this list, but there is another familiar item from the bathroom.
More than 500,000 bacteria live on the keyboard within one square centimeter. This is due to the fact that people sitting down at a computer or laptop do not even think about how to wash their hands. Everything that you bring from the street is deposited on the keyboard in a dense layer. Add dust and crumbs to it. The result is an ideal hotbed of pathogenic microbes.
2. Mobile phones
During the day, the cell phone gets into a lot of dirty places: it lies in the pocket where you just took out the money from, or on the desktop, which always has no time to wipe. The phone is taken with unwashed hands after a store, metro, public transport. In a word, he carries a huge amount of all kinds of microbes in a day.
3. Drain hole in the sink
Sink siphon - the most favorable environment for the reproduction of bacteria. As a rule, housewives pay attention to its condition when the drain becomes clogged or an unpleasant smell appears.
Toothbrush can become a source of reproduction of more than 100 million bacteria that are harmful to the body. And this is absolutely natural, because we brush our teeth every day, removing plaque and food debris. After a while, the brush literally overgrows with bacteria.
There are as many bacteria on the surface of the keys as there are on the elevator call button. We never wipe the keys and always take them with dirty hands. They fall in the entrance or on the street, stored in dirty pockets and bring an incredible amount of infectious bacteria into the house. Some give their children as a toy, which is unacceptable and dangerous to the health of the child.
6. Wallet and money
On average, a single banknote contains about 30,000 bacteria per square centimeter. The older the bill, the more it bears infections: helminths, Koch sticks, causative agents of tuberculosis and meningitis. Paying money, people exchange bacteria.
There are 4,000 times more bacteria on a square centimeter of a regular carpet than on the same area of the toilet. The fleecy surface of the carpet becomes an excellent accumulation of all kinds of bacteria, dust mites and particles of dead skin.
Here, you first bring thousands of germs from the street directly into the apartment. In addition, pets are often liked to be here, which then spread bacteria to furniture, tables, window sills and carpets.
9. A curtain for a bathroom
Bacteria multiply more actively in a humid environment. Bathroom curtains are especially prone to ubiquitous mold. But usually they are never cleaned, believing that the soap solution falling on the curtains is enough to disinfect.
10. Dishwasher and washing machine
Despite the fact that both technical means are designed to maintain order and cleanliness, they themselves are a source of microbes.
Plastic medical gloves have become synonymous with the frontline defense against infections and contaminants. These gloves, made from high-quality polyethylene, offer a reliable barrier without compromising tactile sensitivity. Their disposable nature ensures a fresh start for each medical procedure, reducing the risk of cross-contamination. To read more click here.
